Regular visitors here now. As usual, tremendous food and exceptional service. Only small criticism is that the beer is no longer as cold as it was.

We went to Chakana to celebrate my stepdads 70th Bday. The restaurant is beautifully modern. Food was yummy and good value (Sunday £30 set meal). Main course was ok (I had beef stir fry). Starters and desserts were amazing! Drinks were delicious. A little on the pricey side.

Slightly belated birthday lunch with my parents. I had been to several Peruvian restaurants in London and was excited to try a venue closer to home. Styling of restaurant was great, and service was great. Starters were of a good size and tasty, the scallops were beautiful to look at.
My choice of main, squid and prawns was a little dissapointing as I found the crispy squid pieces to be overwhelmingly salty - overpowering the rest of the dish.

If you fancy going off piste for dinner, you can't go wrong with Chakana's Peruvian restaurant. Peru being the land of several thousand varieties of edible potato, even the most basic meat and potato dish shouldn't be boring, but the Peruvian chef achieves miracles with the little round brown, orange, white, yellow, red, purple and many other coloured tubers. Add in some tiger milk, a ravishing array of gentle spices and a wide range of meat, fish or vegetables and what you are left with is a unique gustatory experience, nothing else like it and almost guaranteed to make you want to come back and try something else. Oh and the cherimoya (custard-apple) and macca root desert, a favourite of the Incas, is quite simply heavenly. Highly recommended, with or without the traditional Peruvian brandy cocktail, Pisco sour to wash things down with.

Had the Peruvian experience tasting menu. The food was sublime. The waiter was very informative . All the staff were very friendly and there’s a nice atmosphere in the restaurant. Chef Robert even came to our table to say hello. The guy is a maestro. The food is some of the best I’ve tasted in quite some time . Fabulous combinations of flavours and textures . Bravo ! Highly recommend

We started with the salmon tiradito and crab causa, both of which were amazing. Prior to that we had some corn bread with a roasted garlic dip. Not sure how the dip was made, but it was delicious.

For the mains, I had the squid, which was unlike any squid I've ever had before. It was incredibly soft, with delicate flavours running through the dish. My husband had the pork, which he usually avoids. He raved about it. I believe it was marinated for 24 hours, then cooked, slowly, for several hours afterwards.

I would also recommend having the Pisco Sour drink! Lovely!

The staff were brilliant, very helpful and friendly, especially the guy with Chilean roots.

We had the Peruvian tasting menu. It was great to have a different dining experience. We loved the cocktails and all the cold starters but were not so keen on the main hot meals. This is just a personal choice though. There was nothing wrong with them . Just not to our taste. The staff were excellent. Very refreshing to have staff that are passionate about what they are serving. We found the background noise quite loud but we’re old! The staff were so good when we asked for recommendations for the wine etc. In conclusion we enjoyed the experience very much and would like to return choosing our favourites from the menu now that we have had a taste of what is on offer.
